You might also consider having it's valve clearances checked. This is known to cause these issues. These carburetted twins usually start like a dream. Mine ('02) has stock everything. Just big jets and aftermerket mufflers. It starts in about 2-3 revolutions every time, hot or cold, even on this crappy gas we get here in California. They seem to be a lot more trouble free than the injected ones. ...J.D.
